Right now, we’re about to let you in on our biggest secret: How we create the magical Cocio Classic. Well, technically it’s not a secret because we proudly share it with the world, but let’s just forget that for a moment. Secret sounds more awesome than recipe.
If you ask a Cocio where home is, it’ll answer* Esbjerg - Because that’s where Cocio was born and where the Cocio factory is located. We can produce 800.000 cans and bottles of liquid loveliness a day. That’s a lot. But there are a lot of Cocio-craving stomachs out there.
Our list of ingredients is not very long. Actually Cocio Classic only contains three ingredients: fresh milk, the best UTZ certified cocoa from Africa and some sugar. These three ingredients have not changed since 1951 when the first Cocio was produced.
We mix the three ingredients; milk, cocoa and sugar and pour it into glass bottles (or cans) and the lid is put on. Then the bottles are put into a large cooker for about 20 minutes. It’s this cooking process that gives Cocio its unique and creamy taste - because at the exact right temperature the sugar caramelises, the magic happens and the delicious, unique and creamy taste of Cocio comes to life. Nobody has ever been inside the cooker, when this happens, but we’re pretty sure...
After the cooking process, the products settle for exactly 5 days to get that great Cocio taste - you know what they say; good things come to those who wait.
*Although most of the bottles are very shy and silent.
